Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association launched #GivingTuesday 2018 campaign: Change a Life

ALVA, Okla. (Nov. 26, 2018)— The Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association has officially launched its 2018 #GivingTuesday campaign which runs through Dec. 7.

Change a Life

#GivingTuesday 2018 provides the opportunity to invest in our Northwestern students’ academic careers through scholarships. This is Northwestern’s fourth annual #GivingTuesday campaign. In the last three #GivingTuesday campaigns, more than $153,0000 in funds were raised to support the goals and dreams of future teachers, nurses, computer scientists, doctors, business leaders, social workers…the list is endless. The Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association continues to encourage every person to give at some level in this year’s campaign to provide support for Northwestern students in their academic pursuits.


During this #GivingTuesday, the Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association will be doing the “5-for-5” challenge. Similar to the ALS ice bucket challenge, each individual will donate at least $5 to the #GivingTuesday 2018 campaign and challenge five others on their social media platforms (Facebook, twitter, Instagram, etc.). The goal is to gather 100 donors or more to give.

Those who choose to invest in Northwestern students during the #GivingTuesday campaign are encouraged to follow the social media accounts of Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association to stay informed on the progress made.

How to Give

Gifts may be made online with a credit card at or by check to the Northwestern Foundation and sent to 709 Oklahoma Blvd., Alva, OK 73717. Each gift will be added to the endowment of the donor’s choice. If no choice is made, the funds will go to RISE, the general endowed scholarship fund. Donations made to the RISE scholarship will also be counted towards the #GivingTuesday campaign. For more information on RISE and annual giving, go to or call 580-327-8593.
